- Garak: Why is it no one ever believes me, even when I'm telling the truth?
- Dr. Bashir: Have you ever heard the story about the boy who cried wolf?
- Garak: No.
- Dr. Bashir: It's a children's story. About a young shepherd boy who gets lonely while tending his flock, so he cries out to the villagers that a wolf is attacking the sheep. The people come running, but of course there's no wolf. He claims that it's run away and the villagers praise him for his vigilance
- Garak: Clever lad, charming story.
- Dr. Bashir: I'm not finished. The next day the boy does it again and the next too. And on the fourth day a wolf really comes, the boy cries out at the top of his lungs, but the villagers ignore him and the boy and his flock are gobbled up.
- Garak: Well that's a little graphic for children, wouldn't you say?
- Dr. Bashir: The point is; if you lie all the time, nobody's going to believe you even when you're telling the truth.
- Garak: Are you sure that's the point, Doctor?
- Dr. Bashir: Of course, what else could it be?
- Garak: That you should never tell the same lie twice.

Jayne - Maria Hill
Book - Nick Fury
River - Hulk
Simon - Phil Coulson
Kaylee - Thor
Inara - Hawkeye
I’m not particularly thrilled with the castings for Simon and Jayne, but nobody else really fit into those roles. Nick Fury feels like he’d be better as Badger than as Book, to be honest, but I think he fits as Book reasonably well.
- John Crichton: Dog with two bones.
- Utu-Noranti Pralatong: Unfamiliar.
- John Crichton: Dog, animal, it's a pet. He has this bone. It's the most important thing in the world; he carries it everywhere he goes. And, uh, one day he goes down to the water and he sees another dog with a bone reflected on the surface. It's identical. And he wants that bone too, so he opens his mouth to grab it and his bone falls in the water and it disappears. It's gone. And he's left standing there... looking at himself. And he has nothing.
D’Argo: “This ship was thought to be invincible.”
Crichton: “Well…ask Leonardo DiCaprio. Even the biggest ones go down.”
This show has the best dialogue.
YES! I still watch TV shows and read magazines and enjoy things that have problematic aspects, but that doesn’t make me any worse of a feminist. Feminism doesn’t require you to become an ascetic about all media. It just means acknowledging that things are wrong and could be changed.

That’s what you get for being Ben Linus’ lover, dude.
